Ejurahene releases 100-acre land for Ghana Baptist Convention proposed Agric College

Barima Osei Hwedie II and Nananom of the Ejura Divisional Council have released a 100-acre piece of land to the Ghana Baptist Convention (GBC) for the construction of an Agricultural College, for the training of Ghanaian youth to promote agricultural value chain.

The Ejurahene stated at the handing over of the documents of the land to the Baptist Convention that the gesture is geared towards complementing government efforts to improve food security in the country.

The draft document on the land covers the site plan and agreement between the two parties and the use of the land, and would be signed after both parties agree to the terms.

Barimah Osei Hwedie appealed to the Ghana Baptist Convention (GBC) to develop the land as soon as possible because the construction of a tertiary institution, dedicated for agriculture related studies, will not only help Ejura and the municipality but Ghana as a whole.

The Ghana Baptist Convention was represented at the official handing over of documents by Rev. Charles Oppong Poku, the Executive Vice-President, Rev. Dr. Charles Owusu Ampofo, the President for Ministers Conference and Rev. Anthony Owusu Ampofo, Head of Mid- Ghana Sector of the Ghana Baptist Convention.

Rev. Oppong Poku on behalf of the church expressed its profound gratitude to Barimah Osei Hwedie for the kind gesture for releasing the land for the proposed Ghana Baptist University.

The Minister assured the chiefs that GBC has set up a team to develop the land, and says the church would not only build a modern school to train the youth but will as well engage in large scale farming to boost food security in the country.
